If you have merged the newlib sources into the gcc source tree and
have configured for a cross-target, you should be fine.
The --with-newlib flag is used to tell gcc to use newlib header files.
The header files are used, for example, when building the target library
When doing a cross-target build and newlib is present in the source
tree, this occurs automatically.
